Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering Program Summary

The Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (MSME) program offers a curriculum based on theoretical foundations and practical applications. The program is designed to provide advanced study in mechanical engineering for students with a substantial background in the discipline. Full-time students, registering for four courses per quarter, can complete the program in three quarters.  The program also accommodates part-time students.  New students can enter the program in either fall, winter, or spring quarter. 

The MSME program was developed by the faculty of the Mechanical Engineering Department and the Industry Advisory Board.  The program is a blend of a purely technical degree and a management focused degree.  The program is designed to be attractive to professionals who are looking to move into technical management positions and need advanced training to achieve their career goals, as well as to the new graduates with bachelor’s degrees. The MSME program is designed to accommodate both working professionals and full-time students.
